    Nice build quality, interesting holes in spider.

    I got the carbon pulp ones; similar to the SS Classic woofers. Hope to do some measurements soon. Recommend looking at them.
    I love all the scan speak versions the 18W/8535 is one of the best sealed box woofers
    around, until these new SB ceramic drivers came out anyway!

    Xmax, way off topic but have you heard the Rival woofers sold by Rhythm Audio Design?

    Have you played any actual music through it yet?
    Yes I really them.

    It looks like there are 6 screw heads, and 6 little nubs that appear to be dummies.

    Removing it does draw attention to the 20 screw holes, good heavens.

    Funny you mention that. I did not even notice all those screws until that photo of the naked tweeter!

    The tweeter looks like the w2-2243s.

    Tweeter response is smooth from the standard of the usual raggedy Coax graphs we're all accustomed to.

    How many Basil's were required before the grill came off?

    They're definitely unusual looking drivers. Might make good center channels.
